How to easily identify plants
How to reliably identify plants if they are not in bloom? Very simple: check the shape of their leaves. With this practical book you can recognize plants with zero effort almost throughout the entire growing season.
It presents the most important flowering plants, ferns, horsetails, grasses, and subshrubs of Central Europe in 1,100 colour photos, 2,000 scientific drawings and descriptive texts. Exact location data, common neighbouring plants, and name synonyms complement the botanical depictions. Basic symbols give information about toxicity, geographic distribution, conservation status, and type of use (healing, spice, or food plant). The perfect companion for outdoor walks in the wild.
